Zukal:

     Ghenis threw down the handful of papers in disgust.  Invoices for the purchase
of black candles and sacrificial knives, chickens, rabbits...potatoes?  An angry note
from the man in charge of the cult's storeroom, demanding an investigation to
determine what had happened to three yards of black cloth and a pound of onions that
should have been there and weren't.  A requisition for a cushion "to kneel on while
praying"--gods!  Members of dark cults were supposed to be TOUGH.  All these
pettifogging little details were an insult to the whole IDEA of a dark cult.  He had
a dark suspicion that Pelishtekan had deliberately dumped this work on him, this
FILING, to get back at him for something.  The Ferencian was always "getting back at
people," and often for the slightest of slights.  It just showed you what kind of
people Easterners were!
     Ghenis looked at the papers that were now scattered on the floor of his cubicle
and came to a decision.  He had had enough.  He walked out into the hall, taking care
to tread on as many of the papers as he could in the process.  These "administrative
details" were the Ferencian's doing, but there might, still, be a proper dark god at
the head of the cult.  He would find out, and if there was such a deity, he would
give it proper worship, with blood--and not chicken or rabbit blood--and dark deeds.
And if not...Pelishtekan would find out that Hell had NOTHING like the fury of a dark
cultist scorned.
     Ghenis began to consider ways in which he might discover the truth at the heart
of the cult.

Elsewhere in Zukal:

     Jorja rubbed her forehead tiredly, which didn't do a thing to relieve the
headache.  She wasn't sure just how SHE had been appointed to organize the overthrow
of Sekahos, one of Inzolas' men and the current ruler of Zukal.  What business was it
of hers?  She was Adantri, dammit.  She sighed.  Doreg's doing, probably.  Doreg
was--or had been--one of the Bandit Princes of Zukal.  Their association had been
brief; she hadn't even liked the man much.  But apparently that was enough.  By
Mantor's blazing sword, it was MORE than enough.
     If getting rid of Sekahos was what it took to shut up the yammering Bandit
Princes, then she would do it.
     The first thing she needed was information.  Spies.  She began to go over the
list of gladiators she might call on for assistance.

Somewhere between Veastian and North Fork:

     Emir Kyreses of Veastian shrugged and sighed.  "I know.  You meet the Mad
Khaliv's minions on land, and I have no doubt they're a major problem.  But--"
     "AND we shelter YOU from them," Gorich of North Fork cut in.  "WE bear the
burden of his demon soldiers, not--"
     "We meet them at sea," Kyreses countered.  "Most of our ships are destroyed or
dare not return from southern ports, no sailors can be found who will ship out of--or
into--Veastian.  To say nothing of the damage this has done to our economy, we--"
     "Something must be done."  Gorich glared at Kyreses, daring him to counter THAT
statement.
     The Karnhorn did not.  "I agree.  But I don't know what will answer our needs
best.  To kill the Mad Khaliv is obvious, and it MAY be enough...or it may simply
free all the demons he's bound to his service."
     "Aye."  The swampman was silent for a moment.  Then he shrugged.  "But at least
it's a place to start.  But to assassinate the Mad Khaliv will take men very nearly
as mad as he is."
     "Gladiators," Kyreses said.  "That is who we must send."

This is a general call for warriors who want to be in adventures.  Any warriors from
any arenas, Basic or Advanced, any region, are welcome.  A personal or a diplo to
Scribe will do the trick.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ALJAFIR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, KINDRED OF KAOS, since DELTA 
DOOM took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  UNJUSTIFIABLES turned 
their 3-2-0 turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
BLACK-DOT DOTTIE win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLACK-DOT 
DOTTIE beat FRIED and FRIED lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as GHENGIS KHAN takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why 
am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ALJAFIR?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  FISH THANGS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
DELTA DOOM.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, KARO LEE was this turn's 
most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the ALJAFIR arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

11-17-5-7(1) TP, good luck. -- Adobe

All -- Time for me to head to the pasture, lots of ladies to catch up on.  By the way
was +2 parry with ad-x and +4 riposte with an expert I just rec'd in last fight. --
Adobe

Roll-Up Gods -- Please, no more scum! -- Barnabas

Pip -- Damn Pip, you just beat one of my guys, I must be slipping. -- Barnabas

Judge -- Haven't heard much out of you, must be kinda like Pip and really tied up
with TOGS.  Didn't want to say anything in 60, but you shouldn't challenge me there,
I didn't get into the TOGS tournament, had a serious family illness when it started.
Was wondering if you were making the FtF. -- Barnabas

Fried!  Fried!  Fried!  Fried!  ...

Poop ina Sock -- Did that really happen? -- Do-Goodin Gary
P.S.  Dottie wanted to talk however she blew out the fuse on her voice-box hitting a
high note in the shower.  Now she's talking but not saying anything...whiiiich...come
to think on it, really isn't so out of character after all.

Dark Magician -- Your sorcerelles against human opponents?!?  S'like rain in a
tropical forest to me.  A mist I notice, but don't let ruin my day. -- The Entity

The Entity -- You are a most impressive opponent.  Your decisiveness, your attack
ability, your defense ability, amazing!  You must be destroyed... -- Dark Magician

We've added our fourth member named Cosmo Queen who may or may not stay around, based
on her upcoming tourney performance. -- Let's Duel

Ghengis Khan -- I don't know where they FOUND you, but you're definitely ANTI-MOUSE,
and that is BAD.  May you be eaten by a cat! -- Mouse Noyle

Tiberious -- I can't help it, I STILL think you should be a root.  Probably a turnip.
I'll bet if you really tried, you COULD be.  Go on, try! -- Karo Lee

Exodia! -- You're certainly a good student.  Whoosh, I don't know when I taught that
much at one go.  I predict a fruitful and brutal career ahead of you, and I hope not
to see you so close again.  No rematch, boy! -- Torlyn Una

Omg-Stfu -- I was trying to formulate a plan whereby I could defeat you, and I was
JUST on the brink of something really brilliant, when your chaos hit me.  Poof, no
more coherent plan.  Gods, that was subtle and devious of you! -- Tabeta Unis

Black-Dot Dottie -- Well, gee, if you'd begged for mercy, I could've claimed you as
mine and taken you home and washed your face.  Think how much better you'd feel with
a clean face. -- Daron El

8 December 2003
Greetings!  I would like to invite everyone to Jhans (DM 36) for the first annual kLk
St. Valentine's Day Massacre (kill contest).  We will start the contest off with the
ceremonial burning of the Andorian flag on turn 450.  (Six turns away.  Roughly mid-
February.)  The contest will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461, 3 separate victors will
be announced.  Team with the most kills, warrior with the most kills, and alliance
with the most kills.  Prizes will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most
kills and to the manager of the warrior with the most kills.  The prizes will
probably be team roll-ups.  The number of roll-ups has yet to be determined.  The
contest is sponsored by Jhans' newest, (but by the time the contest starts) largest
alliance, the kLk (pronounced "klick"). -- Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg DM 36
